Walk Parramatta: River Walk (part 2)
Walk Parramatta is a 3-part walk: River Walk, Park Walk and Heritage Walk. This is the 2nd part of our River Walk which features views from the Elizabeth St footbridge through to Barry Wilde and Lennox bridges.
The Lennox Bridge (below) is of State significance, as one of the oldest extant bridges in Australia, and survives as a rare example of early nineteenth century civil engineering technology. It has been an important feature of the Parramatta townscape for over one hundred and fifty years.
Lennox Bridge is a single span stone elliptical arch bridge over Parramatta River on the line of Church Street. Lennox Bridge is the third oldest surviving masonry bridge in NSW and is a fine example of convict built Colonial Architecture in Australia designed by David Lennox.
